A few of our Rangers girls have shown their dedication to netball this weekend. The Regional Academy have their three day training camp where all the regions come together (over 200 players from all over Qld – from Cairns to the Gold Coast) to learn drills, skills, and education sessions on how to take their netball to the next level. They have been getting up bright and early to head down to Moreton Bay College for an 8am start, and last night everyone went to see the Firebirds at Boondall. A first for a few of our girls, and a first for a lot of the other regions players (coming from as far away as Cairns, Biloela, Rocky, Mackay etc). Thanks to the weather, a change of schedule was had and combining 6 outdoor courts onto two indoor courts, and an undercover section to boot – but they were able to put into practise an application of one of their education sessions about “adjustability” (being able to adapt your game to any situation). Due to the wet weather, tomorrow we are moving venues and they are hitting the courts at the State Netball Centre from 9-11, where they will be joined by more dedicated Rangers umpires (Caroline, & Nicola). So if you would like something to do tomorrow, come on down and watch and you might see a future Diamond in the making.
An indication of how important Netball Qld believe that player safety is they spent two full sessions on the “Knee Programme“, one educational, and the second was practical. Your coaches have been running these warm-up drills EVERY session in addition to before every game. However, today NQ were really emphasising that players and parents also need to take responsibility for player wellbeing, so we would like you to please look at the following link: http://knee.netball.com.au/ and have your girls really working on keeping knees aligned over feet when they are landing and moving (use a video to help them see where they need to adjust). Most of you will use the Junior programme, even those of you who are 15+ if you have not done some of these drills before, as it is all about injury prevention and you will need to build up the strength and correct technique before you move on. If you have any questions please ask your coach.
